Something I Forgot To Put In Yesterday's Post About Sharleen Spiteri

Right, in the Texas song, "Say What You Want", when she sings "And when I get that feeling...", is that a credited/acknowledged lift from Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" or have they just nicked it hoping no-one would notice? If you can bear to bring yourself to listen to that song again (I had to, I was at work), you will hear that it's not just the same words, it's sung in exactly the same way, and I don't know why, but it's really bothering me.
Either way, I hate that song even more now. Admittedly "Sexual Healing" was hardly his greatest song, but it's still a billion times better than anything Sharleen has ever thought of in her whole life. Even if it was a dream about dragons. She'd make a dream about dragons bland and boring.
"Weell, yu caan shaay watchu waoon bud it woan ch" SHUT UP!!

Fuck yes. Really really really annoying. It's like she's trying so desperately to be sexy, but learned how to be sexy from someone having an asthma attack or something.
